DILI (AP): A strong earthquake struck off the coast of East Timor on Wednesday, prompting authorities to issue a tsunami warning – but no large waves hit the tiny nation’s coast.

The 6.2 magnitude tremor struck 262 kilometers northeast of the capital, Dili, in Indonesia’s Banda Sea at a depth of 10 kilometers, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Residents in Dili did not feel any shaking and there were no immediate reports of damage of injuries.

Indonesia’s Metereology and Geophysics Agency issued a tsunami alert, saying it had been powerful enough to generate giant waves. The warning was later retracted.

East Timor, a colony abandoned by the Portugese that became Asia’s youngest country after breaking from Indonesia in 1999, sits along a series of fault lines and volcanoes known as the Pacific Ring of Fire.

In December 2004, a massive earthquake struck off Indonesia’s Sumatra and trigerred a tsunami that killed more than 230.000 people in a dozen countries, including 160.000 people in Indonesia’s western of province of Aceh.

  1. Some damage and injuries.
  2. Shaking northest of Dili.
  3. No damage and injuries.
  4. Generating giant waves.
  5. Trigerring a tsunami.


Pada kalimat pertama “A strong earthquake struck off the coast of East Timor on Wednesday, prompting authorities to issue a tsunami warning – but no large waves hit the tiny nation’s coast”, artinya ada gempa bumi yang diprediksikan menghasilkan gelombang tsunami, tapi kenyatannya tidak ada, sehingga tidak ada kerusakan dan korban yang jatuh (no damage and injuries).

Mengidentifikasi Plot dari Teks

Many people say that examinations should be abolished because they are not the best measure of student’s capabilities. These people believe that students can study on their own and do better without the nagging worry and pressure exerted by examinations.

Yet, there are persuasive reasons to show that examinations should not be abolished. It is insufficient that teachers assign homework and correct it. Because this is not done under supervision, they cannot be sure that it is really the work of the students themselves. Moreover, homework is not a test of student’s ability. Homework is a method of merely keeping him occupied.

Nowadays, in the hunt for the jobs, students need to produce some evidence of their capabilities. Prospective employers like to see copies of examination results. This is the only way a student’s qualifications can be judged. This attitude greatly encourages the use of examinations, since it considered it necessary for them to measure their capabilities.

  • Why do some people disagree to abolish the examination?
  1. Exam result is the only proof of student’s capabilities.
  2. Nobody trusts the students nowadays.
  3. It is a regulation in the country.
  4. It is a good measurement.
  5. It is for the sake of efficiency.


Sebagian orang tidak setuju ujian dihapus karena ujian merupakan alat yang baik untuk mengukur kemampuan siswa. “…since it is considered it necessary them to measure their capabilities.”
